Seisatsu has promoted hate speech on the internet for over a decade and and continues to do so, yet when his efforts bear fruit in the form of terrorism nobody hold him responsible.
Does anyone else think thats odd?
If people on the internet were saying Seisatsu should be shot and then someone did it, the people who were saying to do so on the internet would be considered partly responsible, so why is it different when Seisatsu promotes terrorism and then others suffer while he benefits?

Recently, I took the Enneagram test. I'm either a type 8, type 4, or type 6. Also either a 8w7 or 8w9. This doesn't surprise me much since it fits my experience with every other personality test. I don't neatly fit into one category and the way I act and think dramatically shifts depending on the circumstances. Frankly, I think Meyer-Briggs is obsolete bullshit unsubstantiated by modern reseach. People who take it too seriously come off as pretentious and simple-minded to me and on forums it's like they actively try to fit the stereotype. I think it appeals to people who don't have anything real going for them. The missing piece is taking into account how people's personalities naturally shift. The brain is remarkably complex, but what we perceive as personality is basically an illusion.

Anyway, I thought about how you could make a better test and came up with some ideas. Aside from testing for general behavioral tendencies like extraversion and introversion, I think there should be sub-catergories depending on other factors:

How you interact with people you see as socially and emotionally above, equal and below you. By socially above, I mean like societal position. A boss or parent or teacher is above you. Emotionally above is somebody you actually respect and look up to. A boss you think is an asshole or idiot is somebody you see as socially above you, but emotionally below you, etc.

How you deal with your own and others social/emotional challenges.
How you deal with your own and others social/emotional desires.

All of the questions will also take into account whether you feel content or discontent(sadness/anger) socially/emotionally. Depending on everything, your results would also include stable/unstable and successful/unsuccessful.

Overly positive descriptions give people a warped sense of self-perception. Taking into account whether a person is well adjusted or not would give more accurate results. I think this whole thing could only be accomplished by asking about complex scenarios and including some more personal questions.

Don't really care for personality tests as I don't see any value in them but took the test you linked anyway. Like the other anon on this thread I also received 5w6. Apparently I have a type 1 personality and the description somewhat seems to describe the type of person I have been the past few years.

Your ideas to include questions pertaining to how a person treats people of different social ranks is interesting and probably would result in more effective tests.

However, the main issue I see with personality tests are related to the actual method of gaining answers; from the person themselves. If a person is not good at introspection or is highly emotional the day they fill in the test, the results will be inaccurate. Having other people fill in the test for you also seems to have similar issues.

Before we try to find better methods of testing we should ask what value the results of a personality test offer anyone. I struggle to find much value in assigning different personality 'types' to people. (Perhaps it could discover which couple combinations work best or which personality types tend to form friendships with one another).

Monster girl quest. Generally i'm not into fantasy, lord of rings type stuff. I don't hate it, but it doesn't appeal to me. Monster girl quest is actually the only exception to this. I guess I like the idea of there being something higher than humans on the food chain, something that's intelligent and good looking to boot. I also like how Christianity type stuff is mixed with shinto and neither one is actually super praise worthy. Everybody is more or less equal despite everything else. Not realistic, but it doesn't have to be. Nostalgia also has to do with it.

A couple days ago, I found an old printed copy, all the way back from middle school, of the login info for some online databases. I thought it'd be funny to see how much info they have on nip stuff. Instead it was sort of depressing, but a bit informative. Newer articles seem to focus entirely on live action remakes or whatever's airing on netflix, older ones from the early 2000s have this air of confusion and disbelief that's painful. The few 90's articles seem the most genuine. Here's some choice quotes. This is how it's perceived by outsiders.
TV Overdose for Kids- 2009
>I still get nostalgic whenever I come across kiddie shows on television.For example, I pine for old good carrot-munching Bugs Bunny and perky Woody Woodpecker. The fast-paced Japanese animated shows called Anime, in my book, are too realistic and mere imitation of violent adult action movies.Some of the casualties of modern animation were characters that my generation grew up with.
>harsh-voice Donald Duck, Tom and Jerry and Mickey Mouse with his merry gang of Minnie Mouse, Pluto and hare-brained Goofy, truly kid stuffs. These wholesome shows of my childhood have now been replaced by Astro Boy, Voltes V, Mazinger Z and other androids battling mechanical monsters out to take over the world.As always, the shows always end up with the hero and the villain trying to annihilate each other in a flurry of lights, colors and grating synthesized sounds. Great for kids, but unfortunately, bad for their education.
>Research shows that exposure to this type of programming increases the risk of aggressive behavior and at the same time, desensitizes children to violence. Studies on links between TV overdose and child development and value formation also reveal that these kinds of shows can muddle children&rsquo;s understanding of the world and get in the way of their learning what&rsquo;s right and what&rsquo;s wrong. All this is according to LimiTV, a United States organization that advocates little-to-no TV viewing for children four-and-under.
>TV can also cause depression in a child who eventually feels like a &ldquo;loser&rdquo; if he or she does not get to possess the product being advertised.

Anime in America: Japan's animated movies have risen from cult status to cultural force in the US. Next up for the moviemakers: winning approval from Mom and Dad- 2003
>An abandoned theme park. Temples, lakes and food fit for gods. It's a cartoon, but a beautiful, stunningly realistic one that leaves the audience hushed at this dinky art house theater in South Florida. Most wait until the last credit leaves the screen. The movie is Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi in Japanese) and it's the latest anime hit in the US. Anime in America is winning more sales and fans than ever before.
>Hard-core anime fans are not surprised by the film's success. They've grown up on TV shows like Voltron and Power Rangers, so the brilliance of Miyazaki and other anime directors is nothing new.
>Japanese anime, a genre once reserved for the TV dens of Star Trek-types and reclusive teenagers, is now super-hip in the States.
>typical anime fans used to be predominately male, techie types, 70-80 percent college educated and between 25 and 30 years old. Today the US audience is 50:50 teenagers (mostly 14- and 15-year-olds) and adults, according to a recent survey at an SPJA expo in New York.typical anime fans used to be predominately male, techie types, 70-80 percent college educated and between 25 and 30 years old.

Still exists.
>To save paying $100 plus per tape, fans would drive for miles to the paltry number of stores stocking anime. They'd tape it, duplicate it, then send it back. It was Gunbuster's success that triggered a flurry of releases, Tatsugawa says.
>More Americans got excited by anime in 1993, when the Fox Channel Network aired a remake of the Power Rangers, says Innes. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was an instant hit and created an anime frenzy.

Anime vs aid - 2015
>Japan has typically seen Africa as a basket of problems to be solved with aid. It should see it as a big media market.
>Japanese culture is a very serious matter when it comes to this passionate group of South Africans, and although the idea of manga fanboys and fangirls in Africa may seem a little incongruous at first, it shouldn't be a surprise at all.
>Tokyo's dominant perception of Africa can arguably be summed up in the words of Makoto Ito, Japan's ambassador to the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD), Japan's central forum for aid to Africa: "Africa faces challenges such as income disparity, overreliance on natural resource trading, infectious diseases, political instability and recurrent conflicts," he said. "International support is essential to tackle these issues."
>But this manic creativity hasn't always sat well with the Japanese government. Throughout most of the 20th century, the Japanese government viewed its pop culture industry as trivial and embarrassing at best. It was only after the end of the bubble economy in the early 1990s that the government grasped its global popularity. Diplomats then had to catch up with foreign fans that knew much more about Japanese works than they did.
>What followed was an uneasy alliance between Japan's creative industries and its government, with the latter trying to use global fandom as a gateway to public diplomacy. This collaboration came to be known as the Cool Japan campaign
>The presence of China in Africa is nothing if not controversial, but both its supporters and critics agree that China is in Africa to do business. Whether that business is ultimately to Africa's benefit is hotly contested.

Magic, Shōjo, and Metamorphosis: Magical Girl Anime and the Challenges of Changing Gender Identities in Japanese Society.
>It is argued that the genre developed in close connection to the culture of shōjo (female adolescence) as an antithesis to adulthood, in which women are expected to undertake domestic duties. The paper then incorporates contexts for male-oriented fan culture of shōjo and anime aesthetics that emerged in the 1980s. The recent tendencies for gender bending and genre crossing raise critical questions about the spread of the magical girl trope as cute power. It is concluded that the magical girl genre encompasses contesting values of gender, and thus the genre's empowerment fantasy has developed symbiotically with traditional gender norms in society.

A young hero's attempt to impersonate a princess collapses when her female lover climbs into bed with him. In Japan animated features, television shows, and direct-to-video series include every genre and type of character — including gay men, lesbians, and transvestites.
